Merry from Merry with Children is back to provide us with another mommy-approved, family friendly recipe in this month’s guest blog post.

Weeknights are often too busy for more than a quick bite for dinner. I love to cook so by the weekend I want to make something more substantial. In our house, I need recipes that will make both a super hungry 14 year old boy and a super picky 5 year old boy happy. Baked noodle dishes are always popular. I have been tweaking this recipe for a while and I have found that you can decrease the amount of cheese from what most recipes call for. In this version, I have decreased the mozzarella and added lower fat cottage cheese.

It was quiet around the dinner table tonight. Everyone gave two thumbs way up for the recipe. My little guy, Evan, even had seconds. That is dinner time miracle!
